Northern California Community Loan Fund (NCCLF) is one of four inaugural members of Reinvestment Fund’s ReFresh program, which seeks to increase healthy food access throughout the country. ReFresh launched in 2014 with support from JPMorgan Chase.
Together with California FarmLink, NCCLF helped finance Bucio Organic Farms’ pre-season costs. Founded by Rigoberto Bucio, the 15-acre farm grows organic, healthy produce, and delivers to market – mostly through regional wholesale distributors.
Long-time support from the Agriculture and Land-Based Training Association (ALBA), FarmLink, and now NCCLF, has helped Rigoberto grow his business.
